When “Gifted” star Lily Tomlin and her daughter, Malia, both got to see “The Mummy” as a child, they shared a moment in the theater and then an interview with The Associated Press.
Tomlin, who starred in the film, said the film “really brought a new meaning” to the word mummy.
“It was one of the happiest moments of my life,” Tomlin said of the experience with her actress daughter, who plays Malia.
“I can’t wait to see what Malia is going to do with this opportunity.”
Tomlin said the actress was in awe of the film as she watched the two-hour production.
“I can honestly say I didn’t know what to expect,” she said.
“It was a very special moment.”
The Mummies was made by Universal Studios in 1982 and stars Tomlin as a little girl who becomes a mummy and a witch.
It tells the story of a young girl named Grace, who inherits her mother’s body after her mother is killed by a man who had been possessed by the evil spirits of her mother.
Tomlins character has grown up, and Malia has been raised as a witch and a mummy.
Tomlin is now the wife of “Gotham” co-creator David Simon.
She also starred in “Ghostbusters” and “The Avengers.”
Tomlins daughter, the actress said, is an actress and producer, and is excited about the chance to work with her mom.
“She’s always been in the movies,” Tomlins daughter said.
